Perception Pescador Pilot 12.0 Sit-on-Top Pedal-Drive Angler Kayak. Ready to change the way you fish from a kayak foreverTry a pedal-powered kayak for under $2,000!An ordinary kayak requires both of your hands to be occupied with paddling if you want to move through still water or steer in your intended direction in current or surf. Not so with Perception's Pescador Pilot 12.0 Angler Kayak! This affordable sit-on-top comes complete with the Pilot Drive pedal drive system that provides an easy way to propel you and all your fishing gear in the water using only your legs and feet. That means your hands are freed up to point the rudder where you want to go, adjust your fishfinder, bait your hook, cast towards that ripple, fight and land fish and take the inevitable selfie with your trophy catch! Plus, it's pre-rigged so it's ready to hold all your fishing gear. With a load capacity of 475 pounds—that's right 475 pounds—is there anything you'll need that this kayak won't carry for you Probably not. And at just over 12 feet long, the Pescador Pilot is built for the tracking and stability experienced anglers expect from their kayak.If you are new to fishing from a kayak, why choose a sit-on-top over a sit-inside kayak Options! It's easier to add accessories. You'll have a better view of the water (and potential obstacles) around you and it's also easier to get out and back in if you feel the need to wade.

If the water's warm, wear clothing that dries quickly and protects you from the sun's damaging rays. If the water or air is cold, you'll want to wear gear that also provides extra warmth. Neoprene shoes or boots (sold separately) feel really good instead of cold, wet feet after a day out in the elements.Pilot DriveBalancing simplicity and ingenuity, the Pilot Drive is performance-engineered to easily propel you on all-day fishing trips in forward and reverse—hands free! This ergonomically optimized, removable drive features a Quick Key zero draft option when you need to retract the propeller and patent-pending Turbo Flaps that help to keep turbulence to a minimum so you won't scare off the fish. The padded pedals provide comfort even when you're barefoot. The 14" prop
